Challenge

Palma is the capital and largest city of the Spanish isle Mallorca. With a history dating back to the Roman period, Palma is the destination for over 30 million tourists per year. So how to modernise and develop a property in an area with its origins in the 10th century?

Solution

The building is located in Calatrava, one of the most attractive areas in Palma. By identifying and enhancing time specific architectural elements specific to area, the identity of the house can be strengthened. The facade is lit with exterior lightning, further underlining the property’s characteristics, creating a magnificent silhouette.

Result

With respect for its long history, the three floor property has undergone an extensive renovation, transforming the house to an exclusive residential townhouse with roof top terrace and swimming pool. The interior is carefully designed as a complement and contrast to the overall architecture, creating a homey yet exclusive experience.
